BLF supports land expropriation in Ventersdorp today

Black First Land First (BLF) will be participating in a land expropriation programe today in Ventersdorp. BLF has declared that all land must be taken back by its rightful owners. The Soweto Land Declaration calls for black people everywhere to form Land Expropriation Committees to take back the land.

Today the Thekiso family will expropriate their land (Klipgat farm) from white farmers which is located north west of Ventersdorp in the Rustenburg district of the North West. It is near the Klerkskraal Police Station. The Thekiso family has instituted a land claim in this respect but the government has instead bought the land and given it back to white farmers to continue the business.

The family explained to BLF that they had been engaging with the government for a possible solution but their efforts have been in vain. There is no way forward coming from the government.

BLF is inspiring our people to defeat fear and take back the land. The racism of Ventersdorp will end only when land has been returned to blacks.

BLF to lay charges of attempted murder, assault & police brutality today

BLF to lay charges of attempted murder, assault & police brutality today

Today, 29 September 2017 at 13:00, Black First Land First (BLF) will open several criminal charges against members of the South African Police Services (SAPS) at the Hillbrow Police Station .

Our movement had a successful peaceful march against the criminal conduct of KPMG yesterday in Johannesburg that concluded with us handing in our Memorandum of Demands to the auditing firm.

However, at the end of the march and while our members were inside a park in Braamfontein, the police started shooting at us with rubber bullets, suddenly and without warning. 27 members were shot, mostly at the back and at close rage, including the BLF President Andile Mngxitama and the Treasurer General Thandiswa Yaphi. Seven BLF members suffered serious bodily injuries and consequently had to be taken to hospital for medical attention.

Our members were shot after white policemen arrived in a private vehicle, being a blue BMW 320i, and instructed the police to open fire. We believe that these are agents of white monopoly capital which has captured the state. BLF is not surprised by the unprovoked attack on our movement. White monopoly capital is digging in and using everything and everyone in its power to try and break the momentum towards revolutionary outbreak.

BLF will also do the following:

1. Demand the suspension from duty of the responsible police officers until the investigations are complete.
2. Write a letter to the Minister of Police asking for action to be taken.
3. Write to the Acting Police Commissioner to seek clarity on whether the police can shoot people with rubber bullets without good cause, without signaling a warning at peaceful demonstrators, and at close range.
4. Lay a complaint of police brutality with the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID).
6. Consider instituting civil claims against the SAPS and the responsible police officers.

Criminal charges will be laid against the police under the following details:

Date: 29 September 2017 (today)
Time: 13:00
Venue: Hilbrow Police Station, 1 Clarendon Place, Hillbrow, Johannesburg

BLF has given KPMG seven days to respond to our memorandum, failing which BLF will institute further action against it. We will continue to expose and fight white monopoly capital corruption. At the same time, BLF will not allow the police to be used against our people.

BLF is more than determined to push the struggle for Radical Economic Transformation to its logical conclusion.

BLF to take action against Judge Fabricius

BLF to take action against Judge Fabricius

Black First Land First (BLF) has resolved to take action against Judge Hans Fabricius who handed down one of the most atrocious judgments in recent times in the case of Oakbay Investments versus Bank of Baroda . The judgment by Fabricius on 21 September 2017 is a testament to the capture of the judiciary by white monopoly capital.

The judge dismissed the application by Oakbay Investments (Oakbay) in an openly biased and illegal manner. He showed via his judgment that he doesn’t care for the plight of the 7500 Oakbay workers who stand to loose their livelihoods upon closure of Oakbay’s bank account by the Bank of Baroda on 30 September 2017. It makes no sense why the judge didn’t grant Oakbay an extension of their relationship with the Bank of Baroda until the main application is heard in December this year. The judgment renders the envisaged main application by Oakbay to try and save its account with the Bank of Baroda superfluous.

BLF has had regard for the history of the judgments and jurisprudential outlook of Judge Fabricius and we have come to the determination that he is not a fit and proper person to be a judge of the High Court or of any other Court of this country. In this regard a number of actions shall be undertaken including:

1. Laying a complaint with the Judicial Conduct Committee of the Judicial Services Commission to have Judge Fabricius removed from the bench.

2. Opening a criminal case against Judge Fabricius on the evidence that he is working with enemies of Radical Economic Transformation such as the racist Organization Undoing Tax Abuse (OUTA).

BLF will submit a written statement of evidence to the police against Judge Fabricius. We call on all judges to resist capture by white monopoly capital in its quest to keep the South African economy in the hands of a minority.

BLF to take action against Johan Rupert

BLF to take action against Johan Rupert

BLF is outraged by the offensive and racist comments by one of the most corrupt white monopoly capitalist, Johann Rupert. This beneficiary of apartheid and colonialism has come out against the Radical Economic Transformation (RET) by President Jacob Zuma and called it “theft”. Rupert is an economic terrorist who is rallying the whole of white monopoly capital (WMC) to attack the economy so as to stop transformation.

Johann Rupert and a few other white monopoly capitalists want to keep the South African economy in their hands. The attack on RET is racist because it equates transformation to a crime. This is because white racists believe that blacks are criminals. Racism is irrational and baseless. The accusation by Rupert that RET is theft, is in the same category as other racist acts.

BLF is aware that there is a massive drive towards economic sabotage to effect regime change. Johann Rupert and the rest of the white monopoly capitalists are I nvolved in economic terrorism. They want the people to suffer even more and thereby cause political stability in the country which they hope will cause the people to them against the government to remove President Zuma. Already the mining sector under the political directive by Johann Rupert is retrenching workers.

BLF is going to take the following actions against Johann Rupert:

1. Open a case of racism at the Equality Court.
2. Lay a criminal case of High Treason.
3. Undertake mass action at Ramgro Headquarters in Stellenbosch.
4. Call on the police to fast track the corruption case that BLF opened against him for stealing from the South African Reserve Bank (SARB) in excess of R2 billion.
5. Follow up on the over R60 million debt incurred for services by a municipality in Mpumalanga. Rupert must pay!

All these actions will be taken urgently!

BLF is also aware that Johann Rupert has moved billions of rands to Europe. This may possibly be part of the annual R60 billion illegal movement of capital outside South Africa. BLF will investigate this as well.

Land or Death!
